First of all, I want to thank to Perry for all his support.
I'm working on developing of a new cosmetic line on completely green range.
Production of our products will be delivered by a laboratory, as well than challengetest , sanitary registry and so on, but we were completely free about ingredients/ supply and formulation ("we" are the team done by an aromatherapyst pharmaceutic and by me ), that we should give completely defined to laboratory.
Once we had defined formulations and raw materials, we had a great quality supply (from germany mostly), and we can think, ok, we are ready, but we thought we can do better...so now we are not only searching Bio-eco-Natrue-ecocert, ingredients, but also those bio-eco proceeding from fair trade and
cooperation projects, if this is possible.
So far I have found a company in Senegal, which produces in small communities,and it supports microcredit projects for women. :-) (as a women both myself,and my colleague and having the possibility of choice, we want to try it!)
Apart from the beauty of the project itself, this senegal company meet the quality standards required (ecocert-bio-natrue) that we will require for our further certifications. We will do short productions (of 500units) that depending on sale1s we will repeat each month(s?), so we need certifications comes from supply. Our lab will not ask for certifications, as this is not possible.
so certificated product only, that on this company seems ok.
But we need different raw materials ... and they can serve us only three oils of which use ..
So I'm searching for small producers/retailers of fair trade bio vegetable oils
(worlwide) or bio fair trade distributors (europe if posible) of these
oil, jojoba oil,avocado oil, apricot kernel oil,hempseed oil, date
kernel oil ,granate seed oil (Punica granatum),and raspberry seed oil ,
all of them in organic-bio grade, and fair trade
Do you know? Can you help?
Do you know that local factory-community-project-cooperative that produce a lovely oil? If yes I will be glad to present that option with a lovely plus.
I´m thinking about a crazy dream? I also appreciate your advice on this point, if you think that to prefer fairtrade to a serious-euro-supply, it´s only a "hippy dream" and it´s not reccomanded under your point of view
I will really appreciate your opinion.
Thanks in advance!
